High Day Blessings!

Happy Hallowe’en/Samhain/Beltane/NaNoEve, for those celebrating. It’s been a quiet day, but a good day. I did most of my ritual yesterday, to be honest. There was a live broadcast of an ADF Samhain rite I followed along with in the morning, then did some Hekate devotions, and then followed it up with the Deipnon in […]

Fiction: Fingerprints

I wanted to get it mostly organised before we’re due to begin on Thursday, because work, and I would not have the […]

But I perhaps wasn’t looking for the right connections. But that connection has totally reshaped the way I see this time of year, and that […]
